Denmark Is Big Winner of Tonight’s International Mediation Ruling

Carl Bildt tweets some good news:

I dunno. I just completed some extensive research on this thorny issue, and here’s my conclusion:

Sorry, Canada, this rock belongs to Denmark. Please remit “loser pays” fee of $100,000 (US dollars, mind you) to Drum Mediations LLC, Irvine, California. Failure to recognize this decision will brand you a lawless state in the court of public opinion and may even precipitate a nasty tweet from President Trump. You have been warned.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
